Radio.com interviewed KROQ Music Director Lisa Worden to discuss Incubus’ new album.
“The first single, called ‘Nimble Bastard,’—which we’ll be world premiering February 16 on The Kevin & Bean Show—is a rocker,” says Worden enthusiastically. She describes the sound as “going back to their roots” with their signature fat bassline and harder guitars… “‘Pardon Me,’ to me, is kind of a medium tempo rock song. This is Megalomaniac,” she says referring to the band’s 2004 hit. Speaking of the guitars, Worden says, “Einziger goes off! He’s got a really rad guitar solo right in the middle of the song.” And she notes that Brandon’s voice has never sounded better. “It starts with the vocal, which I love. It’s identifiable from the first second.”
She also said there is a track Skrilex contributed to that is ‘fricking fantastic.’ There is also a track that is “the sexy Incubus.” Worden said, “It’s slow, moody and vibey—it’s the kind of song where you’ll picture Brandon writhing around with a lot of girls in the video—super sexy.”
Incubus will be releasing a new album in the coming months.
